Baby God

Nearly 2000 years ago, unto us a “God” was born in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger and running the universe …

Nay!

Say,

“He is God , [who is] One,
God , the Eternal Refuge.
He neither begets nor is born,
Nor is there to Him any equivalent.”

  1. Surat al Ikhlass –
    Al-Ikhlas means “the purity” or “the refining,” meaning to remain pure and faithful, or a state of purging one’s soul of non-Islamic beliefs, such as paganism and polytheism.

    Such a purification is the burning away of all of the worldly misunderstandings, concerns and desires that separate us from the One; the One and Only upon whom we depend, the One and Only who is our foundation rock, the Eternal One and Only.

    Surat al-Ikhlass succinctly describes the nature of God in Islam, it is the metric by which we evaluate other religions and separate truth from falsehood, A clear guidance to us from Allah almighty!

    Abu Said narrated that he heard the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, say to his Companions, “Is any one of you incapable of reciting one-third of the Qur’an in one night?” They considered it burdensome and said: “O Messenger of Allah, which one of us can afford to do that?” He said, “Surat Al-Ikhlas (He is God, the One) is equivalent to one-third of the Qur’an.” – (Bukhari)

    The same chapter is also known as Surat at-Tawhid. (The Chapter of Oneness or Unity).

    What a beautiful Surah!!

    • I recently had a conversation with a couple of Christian Methodist missionaries. One of them asked me, “What is your favorite story from the Qur’an,” with a condescending attitude as if the Qur’an is a bunch of fables and fairy tales. I calmly replied to him that, the Bible that often relates stories that are historically unreliable, or that serve no teaching purpose (Lot sleeping with his daughters, etc.), while in contrast the Qur’an utilizes stories to teach us moral lessons, theological points, and correct belief.

      Then I said that if he insists that I relate a favorite “story” or part of the Qur’an, then it would be Surat al-Ikhlass, which I recited to them.

      I quickly followed up by explaining that Surat al Ikhlass/Tawhid, is the metric by which we Muslims evaluate all other religions and separate truth from falsehood, and that based on this surah we can certainly exclude the possibility that Jesus is God.

      The look on the missionaries face was priceless! 🙂

      Your comment is proof that 112:1 is unclear and sloppy – christians don’t believe in two gods, we don’t believe that the true god – Yahweh – has “children” through intercourse and taking a human spouse. The words of the quran – i.e. mohammed and his made up allah – are simply incorrect.

      And yes, “beget” can mean to create – again, either the quran is sloppy in its use of human language….

      I say;
      It is not beget can mean to create, but beget means creation by means of having sex. IT CAN is wrong for you to say but IT MEANS is the correct way for begotten.
      What ever begets means, God Almighty is not begotten to anyone. Jesus was begotten, so he is not God. It is blaspheme to say the Almighty God is begotten. Whatever Son/son means, God is not Son/son to anyone. Those who say Jesus is a Son/son and also God have insulted God because does not beget.

      Beget means to have sex and procreate offspring. That is what it means. With regards to Christians do not believe in 2 Gods and yet we can count more than 2 Gods is just like most idol worshipers insist they worship only one God and yet one can count more than one Gods in their Godhead. God is One and not a Godhead.

      Thanks.

      Christians believe that god exists in all and every dimension – incarnation is not a problem for such a being. Your task is to prove that incarnation is impossible. Good luck with that.

      You will also have to explain how it is possible for allah to excluded from his own creation – how does an all-knowing being lack the ability to incarnate? Did he lose the key to creation?

      I say;
      In the First instance the Bible says “God is not a man” because He cannot become a fully man and that means ceasing to be God or just putting the form of man and still be God. In putting the form of a man, he did not become man but just putting human’s form. The cloth you wear in your human form is not a man but cloth and you are still a man.
      Also, you are not the only one claiming incarnated God. So many religions like Greeko/Roman pagans have many incarnated Gods. This include idol worshipers, Hindus, Rastafarians etc. If you believe in incarnated God, then you have many Gods.

      Allah makes His creation and a creator cannot be a created. Bill Gates created Microsoft Windows and before he created Microsoft Windows, he is not physically in Microsoft Windows, so it is impossible for him to be in Microsoft Windows because a creator cannot be a created. If God is physically in His creation then He becomes His creation which is impossible. God’s knowledge and wisdom is everywhere and so He knows everything about what he created just like how Bill Gates knows everything including the kernel of his creation-Microsoft Windows Operating System.

      Thanks.

      Outside of your own Christian bias, your misunderstanding springs in part from your deficiency in Arabic language. The original words in Arabic are “Lam Yalid” and the meaning is directly in relation to giving birth or siring a child….

      lam = (particle) did not, was not

      yalid = give birth to, sire, beget

      The Qur’an uses a different Arabic word for “create” (Khalaqa – Qur’an 21:33) Therefore God CREATED the universe, and he did not “beget” it.

      And you fail to address the second half of that ayat (112:3) Is God begotten?.

      The holy Qur’an is pinpoint accurate when it says Jesus is son of Mary not son of God because he was indeed born from a human mother, therefore God makes it clear that He is the one and only God of Jesus and that Jesus is just a creation like his mother. God jealously emphasize the false notion of Jesus being “begotten not made” as if that God has ever begot an “eternal” son, whatever that mean, which shall bring the risk of associating the One true God thus blaspheming: the worst sin in the Bible and thus can lead to hellfire.

      You said, “Your task is to prove that incarnation is impossible. You will also have to explain how it is possible for allah to excluded from his own creation – how does an all-knowing being lack the ability to incarnate? Did he lose the key to creation?”

      First, we must affirm that Allah fully capable of any (non-hypothetical) act. In the Qur’an Allah describes himself as “Al-Qadeer” or “The All capable one” (Qur’an 2:20) Also the following verse he makes clear that he is capable of doing all things:

      “And nothing in the heavens or on earth is beyond Allah’s Capability! Verily, he is All-Knowing, All-Capable.” (Qur’an 35:44).

      So the question should not be about whether God is able or capable to incarnate, but rather the question should be, “Why would an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, all-capable, all-merciful and forgiving God HAVE ANY NEED to incarnate?” – and the answer is clearly that there is no need for incarnation in the first place.

      I think the same answer may apply to the question of begetting a son – What NEED is there for such a base and human act by an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, Supremely Divine God?

      I understand the reasons that Christians give in order to argue for God to have such a need. But there are two issues here,
      1) God Almighty Allah is FREE from any NEED.
      2) The Christian arguments for such are based in illogical and false theological understandings such as original sin, faith based redemption, Trinitarianism all of which can be successfully and convincingly argued against, which in turn undermines the Christian argument for there being any initial NEED for the incarnation of a begotten son in the first place.

      As for jesus teaching incarnation – jesus claimed divinity, spoke of the HS as an entity displaying characteristics of personhood, and spoke of the father in heaven. So, clearly, you have little knowledge of christian belief.

      Furthermore, jesus and the apostles would have believed in the jewish scriptures which speak of god appearing in human form in a physical body.

      “As for jesus teaching incarnation – jesus claimed divinity, spoke of the HS as an entity displaying characteristics of personhood, and spoke of the father in heaven. So, clearly, you have little knowledge of christian belief.”

      that’s 3 separate distinct pagan beings right there.
      you are saying that the historical jesus was a pagan . he imagined that his dad was a separate being in heaven and the holy spirit was also like a ghost like figure which could think for itself.

      while he spoke of the father “in heaven”
      he thought that father was also in hell because according to you, the father is everywhere.

      isn’t the son in heaven while it is on earth if they are everywhere?

      so why didn’t historical jesus recall the son in heaven next to the father when he says ” our father in heaven thy….” ?

      jesus claiming divinity would imply that he was a flesh worshiping pagan that he thought of himself so big that he start GLORIFYING his own flesh.

      i also find it funny that this jesus of yours NEEDS the father to say something

      ” i can of my ownself DO nothing”

      “i am COMMANDED what to say…”

      why would god NEED to get COMMANDED to say “i am ” in john ? hahahah this is funny

    • “Surah 112:1 says clearly that allah cannot beget since he has no girlfriend. Clearly you do not read your own scriptures. 112:1 shows that allah is reliant on external sources to be able to beget offspring. CHristians,on the other hand don;t believe that god has offspring – for some reason muslims cannot comprehend this simple doctrine.”

      Firstly 112:1 is not a surah but the first ayat of surah 112. LOL! The fact that you are repeating this just say ENOUGH about the sheer ignorance you have about the Qur’an.

      Secondly Allah doesn’t say that He needs a ‘consort’ to have offspring in 112.

      Thridly: the place where it’s mentioned says this:
      “And they make the JINN associates with Allah, while He created them, and they falsely attribute to Him SONS and DAUGHTERS without knowledge; glory be to Him, and highly exalted is He above what they ascribe (to Him). Wonderful Originator of the heavens and the earth! How could He have a son when He has no consort, and He (Himself) created everything, and He is the Knower of all things. S. 6:100-101”

      So if you are so pathetically desperate to say that this is talking about you and your ilk then that means you are also the ones associating jinn (demons) with God and also daughters to God and also sons (plural so there must be at least another son besides ‘the Son’).
      If that’s where you wanna go then that’s fine by me. You people already are polytheists so adding more sons, daughters and jinn/demons as partners with Him is just an addition to the stuff you already believe in.

      don’t be a shameless liar for jesus. your god is not the creator of the heavens and the earth, he needs to be in it to experience it, otherwise he has no knowledge of his own creation. he has to overshadow a human woman and get popped out from her as fully god and fully human.

      there is no CONSORT for the God who is the creator and controller of the universe.

      1- The term that is translated as son is WALAD. WALAD in Arabic actually means a “product of birth”. So, in this Aya it covers that Allah does not give birth, nor does he have a consort to give birth for Him.

      comment : the religion of christianity teaches that God became walad and was BORN as fully god and fully human and this god was RELIANT on vagina to bring himself into the world.

      quote :

      2- The Aya does not actually say “When ” he has no consort. It Says “And” He has no consort. So, the absence of the consort is one of many reasons why Allah does not have a son and not the only reason. The other reasons are “innovator of the heavens and Earth”. “Creator of everything” and so on. For Mary, the only reason she could not give birth is the absence of the man and nothing else.

      3- The word ANNA that was translated as How, carries many other connotations as well as in How and why together? So, it is not only how, it carries the other meaning of why should He?! There is no reason for Him to have a son.

      The ‘ana’ is also expressed in the fact that God has not taken a consort, because He has no need to, which the disbeliever’s themselves acknowledged. Companionship and ‘children’ fulfill needs of the human being, meaning they are a ‘weakness’. Such a thing finds no place for the Eternal One, who is beyond all needs. If the disbeliever’s acknowledge that God has no consort because it is against his majesty, than the very notion that He would have children is rendered absurd on the same premise.

      Wonderful Originator of the heavens and the earth! How could He have a son when He has no consort, and He (Himself) created everything, and He is the Knower of all things.

  5. Anas said:
    One of the Ansar used to lead the Ansar in Salat in the Quba’ mosque and it was his habit to recite Qul Huwal-lahu Ahad whenever he wanted to recite something in Salat. When he finished that Surah, he would recite another one with it. He followed the same procedure in each Rak’a. His companions discussed this with him and said, “You recite this Surah and do not consider it sufficient and then you recite another. So would you recite it alone or leave it and recite some other.” He said, “I will never leave it and if you want me to be your Imam on this condition then it is all right ; otherwise I will leave you.” They knew that he was the best amongst them and they did not like someone else to lead them in Salat. When the Prophet (ﷺ) went to them as usual, they informed him about it. The Prophet (ﷺ) addressed him and said, “O so-and-so, what forbids you from doing what your companions ask you to do ? Why do you read this Surah particularly in every Rak’a ?” He repiled, “I love this Surah.” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Your love for this Surah will make you enter Paradise.” [ Sahih Al Bukhari]

  7. It is obvious that the Qur’an did not understand Christian theology, which was established for about 600 years before Islam.

    Surah 112 and 6:101 and 19:88-92 demonstrate that the author (or authors or compilers) of the Qur’an mis-understood what Christians meant by “Father” and “Son”.

    Jesus the eternal Son / eternal Word (John 1:1; Philippians 2:5-8; John 17:5) became a human (John 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8; Luke 1:26-35; Hebrews 10:5)

    Since this is so obvious, it demonstrates that the Qur’an is not revelation from God; but just a human book.

    • As I have shown you before, your are basing your premise that your book is from God and it is original, and has been from the very beginning .The fact of the matter is the Qur’an has been WELL ESTABLISHED before your Bible has ever been. As Ehrman menttions:

      “94% of our surviving Greek manuscripts of the New Testament date from after the ninth Christian century. That is 800 years (years!) after the so-called originals.”

      The Qur’an was already in the hearts and minds of the Muslims two hundred years before. While you continued to remain in ignorance, because you were forbidden to read your Book for more than a 1000 years. (https://islamicarchives.wordpress.com/2018/01/05/huffpost-why-christians-were-denied-access-to-their-bible-for-1000-years/)

    • Except that the so called “Christian theology” was never taught by Jesus and the apostles so you are in danger of associating God , a grave sin, mind you.

      Nowhere in the bible it says any kind of eternal son. .it is not necessary to think that “became flesh” (John 1:14a) was intended to refer to the birth of God, or to infer anything about a transformation of God nature or being. Rather, “the word became flesh AND dwelt among us” can be taken as one statement indicating that God has sent his prophet to give warnings for the stubborn Israelites, even in the Qur’an Jesus is called “Word” from God, but muslims never fell into Satan trap to say Prophet Jesus a “God”.

    • The apostle John certainly taught this (Christian theology), as John 17:5 (the eternality of the Son is clear) and John 1:1-5 assert. He was an eyewitness with Jesus for 3 years. (as did Peter and the other apostles – Paul, Matthew, Hebrews, James, Jude, etc.)

      Like

    • Nope, eternal son is not taught there.

      The verb “I had” in John 17:5 εἶχον is in indicative mood, imperfect tense. It dont imply eternial sonship but could be understood as God’s foreknowledge. Muslims dont have problem if Nabi Isa could the “logos” from God, which was the “plan” of God from the beginning, and he was created later when he was conceived.

      Also you ignore the proceeding verses:

      “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: (John 17:20-22)

      Using your eisegesis, it looks like others also “granted” eternality too like the Father. Of course they are not! Only God is eternal.

      imagine you start feeling like a fish in a fish tank. what do you have to tell yourself that you are currently a fish in a fish tank? your human mind, right?

      so your human mind is receiving experiences from the fish in the fish tank

      in the same way , the divine person RECEIVES experiences from the human incarnated person

      if you say that NONE of them EXPERIENCES each other, then you have created 2 separate persons

      for example

      the divine person says to the human person

      “that chicken tasted beautiful today”

      if the divine person said to the human person “i don’t know how that chicken tasted today” then how are they 1 person ?

      in the same way, if the divine person says to the human person ” i don’t know how it is like to pass through vagina after i overshadowed my own mother ”

      then how are they 1 person ?
